an empty threat

This is the first time I've read "An empty threat" but I am a Robert Frost
enthusiast and I can spot some if his trademark patterns.

He developped a style in which people living close to their land (farmers,
woodworkers etc) would converse in a down to earth, but surprisingly
insightful way. These conversational and reflective pieces were often long;
so this is a shorter piece.

The main character recalls his conversation with another in Hudson Bay. It
starts in the outside "political" world, and seems clear, then suddnely you
find yourself wondering about the increasing depth of the lines. It clearly
is not political; its personal and reflective and about transience and
impermanence. (In my opinion!)It also suddenly gets communicative with the
reader; "you" comes into the poem, and RF is suddenly talking to you.
